Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott was named Songwriter of the Year from the song-royalties organization SESAC (pr. See-Sack) on Monday night (November 7th). It’s her third Songwriter trophy in four years. She also received individual ribbons for co-writing three hits for Lady A – “Our Kind of Love,” “Need You Now” and “Just a Kiss,” not to mention recognition for the No. 1 song, “A Little Bit Stronger,” which she co-wrote and was a hit for Sara Evans. Hillary also was presented a more personal gift from the organization – they gave a donation to a charity that does missionary work in Haiti, a place where Hillary has visited many times to assist with earthquake relief.
In other news, Hillary and her Lady A bandmates are nominated for Vocal Group of the Year at Wednesday night’s CMA Awards, where they will also perform. You can catch all the action live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena beginning at 8pm ET on ABC.
At the No. 1 party for “A Little Bit Stronger” in May, Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott, who co-wrote the song with Luke Laird and Hillary Lindsey, talked about how she came up with the idea for the song, and which song her ex-boyfriend thinks is about him.
